Librivox recording of Old Peter's Russian Tales by Arthur Ransome.
Read by LibriVox Volunteers.

Arthur Ransome is best known for his Swallows and Amazons series of children’s books. This is the only example of his fiction in the public domain in the United States. These stories are all from Russian folklore, some comparatively well-known, others less so. Ransome spent some years in Russia as a newspaper correspondent for the Daily News and the Manchester Guardian and was peripherally involved in the revolution. In the late twenties he married Evgenia Shvelpina, Trotsky's secretary, retired from newspapers and started writing his children’s books. (Summary by AJM)

Subject: Highly recommended!
I'm listening to these stories now, and Ms. Lundac (excuse if misspelled!) does a wonderful job of narrating :) I'd like to hear what other stories she has read for - it just makes listening to these old tales so much more enjoyable! Great job!
